This must be true because I got it in an email and some of it is even IN CAPITALS!
Hey it is Andy and john the directors of MSN [ah yes, Andy and John, our good friends at MSN], sorry for the interruption but MSN IS CLOSING DOWN! this is because too many inconsiderate people are taking up all the name (eg making up lots of different accounts for just one person), we only have 578 names left. [How do they know it's 578? That's really weird]I'm glad Andy and john got my attention. I hope they got yours too.
If you would like to close your account, DO NOT SEND THIS MESSAGE ON. If you would like to keep your account, then SEND THIS MESSAGE TO EVERYONE ON YOUR CONTACT LIST. This is no joke, we will be shutting down the servers. Send it on, thanks. [So the servers are going down anyway? Now I'm confused. I better do exactly what the email says.]
WHO EVER DOES NOT SEND THIS MESSEAGE, YOUR ACCOUNT WILL BE CLOSED AND YOU WILL COST 10.00 A MONTH TO USE. ["You" will cost 10.00 a month to use? What, I thought I was free! Now I'm going to have to pay for myself! I'll pay myself in smarties as the exact currency wasn't specified.] SEND THIS TO EVERYONE ON YOUR CONTACT LIST. NOW YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO. PLEASE DO NOT FORWARD THIS or REPLY. COPY THE WHOLE EMAIL. GO BACK TO YOUR INBOX AND CLICK ON NEW. AND PASTE THANK YOU FOR YOUR ATTENTION
Note for those without an IQ: this is not true.
